Aquaponics In India

The Essential Aquaponics Course

The Preamble/ Preface to a Flourishing Business

A Boon in Disguise An Ideal Solution for Modern Farmers

Welcome to the sustainable balance of Aquaponics, which is the shining star in the arena of sustainable farming.

What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is the system of farming plants and fish together in a mutually beneficial single system harnessing the very best of aquaculture (farming of aquatic animals) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil).

How does it work?

Fishes generate waste which is converted to fertilizer by microbes. Plants take up the nutrients from it for their growth and clean water returns to the fish. In other words, Aquaponics is the ideal answer to a fish farmer’s problem of disposing of nutrient-rich water and the hydroponic plant grower’s need for nutrient-rich water.

The Chief Advantages of Aquaponics

  • The technique of Aquaponics yields more produce as it grows up to five times the plants in half the time as compared to conventional farming.
  • It saves water as it uses only 10% of the water of traditional farming.
  • The process can all be done in a fraction of the space. To put it in a nutshell, it requires less space.
  • It facilitates the growth of completely organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.
  • It generates more profits as it has multiple revenue streams in the form of fruits, vegetables and fish.
  • The fish do all the hard work, so it becomes less laborious for humans.
  • Aquaponics aids to grow foods that are non-native or usually out of season all year round. Hence, it fosters year-round production.
  • The fish being reared in Aquaponic farms also act as an additional source of income for farmers.

A Secure,
Sustainable Investment

Aquaponic is the ultimate sector disruptor, turning a people-intensive and weather susceptible industry on its head, and increasing yield for less resource, in terms of water, land and labour.

Aquaponics is the next best investment choice.

  • Aquaponics meets future food demands without depleting our natural resources or harming our environment, supporting United Nations Global Goals for a better future by 2030.

  • The demand for a variety of ingredients has grown considerably over recent years. There has never been a better time to invest in aquaponics: a proven resource in meeting the market demand for fresh and good quality organic produce.

Why This Course?

The course is designed for farming enthusiasts with or without a basic understanding of how Aquaponics works and for people who intend to enhance their knowledge of the science, the operations and the design process of building an Aquaponics farm, both in the backyard and on a small commercial scale. This course comprises study material and learnings derived not only from the experience of running a small commercial farm but also from academic research on the subject of Aquaponics conducted in the past two decades.

  • Are you enthusiastic to master the key operational techniques of Aquaponics required to operate a backyard or a commercial size system?
  • Get a solid understanding of how Aquaponics functions and how you can master all aspects of growing in Aquaponics.
  • Are you tired of searching the internet for answers in so many different places?

There are several resources on the internet that will help you learn the basics of Aquaponics. However, in this course, we would delve deeper into the science behind Aquaponics, how to create an optimal environment for your symbiotic ecosystem, understand fish and fish husbandry so you can produce market-ready fish, plant nutrients and how to create an optimal balance so you could plant as well as fish growth, pest management and control, so you can protect your investment and finally we would put all this newly acquired knowledge into a case study that demonstrates to you exactly how to design a small commercial size Aquaponics system. Furthermore, you’ll also learn:-

  • The components of a home or small commercial Deep Water Culture system
  • How to properly design and arrange the various components of an aquaponic system in order to make it function properly.
  • How to size any system to meet your hobby or commercial system needs.
  • How to create the perfect balance between the fish, plants, and bacteria.
  • How to take your system from the initial stage to the final stage without killing your fish and plants.
  • How to properly maintain water quality.
  • How to use testing instruments to understand your system better.
  • How to remove solid waste and what to do with it.
  • The types of bacteria in aquaponics and how to use them to your advantage.
  • Fish and plants in aquaponics

This Course Is For

aquaponics farmers, organic farmers, gardeners, hobbyists, hydroponic farmers and organic growers respectively.

Instructors Profile

Sneh Shekhawat

is a dedicated pioneer in the budding arena of Aquaponics, as a technique for urban agriculture in her state of Rajasthan and in India as a whole, since the year 2015. She is extremely passionate about imparting the highly productive expertise of Aquaponics to mainstream farmers and has educated hundreds of prospective farmers through the medium of workshops and farm visits. Moreover, she co-founded “Aquaponics in India”, an online forum to teach and connect like-minded enthusiasts. It was a milestone in the journey she had fervently embarked upon a few years ago.

Himanshu Jakhar

Himanshu was raised in various locations around India but has now settled in Jaipur where his family have been commercial farmers for over 50 years. Having witnessed firsthand the ineffective and outdated methods and tools used on the majority of Indian farms, he is convinced that aquaponics is the future of food production. On his regular trips to our farm he is often accompanied by his faithful Labrador ‘Dude,’ who has to be kept a safe distance away from our fishtanks…
